How It Works

Midland Bull Test is a proven program that measures genetic performance potential of individuals or sire groups through individual feed intake measurement, carcass ultrasound and breeding soundness exam of all sale bulls.

Bulls consigned to Midland for the test receive optimal care and attention, with daily herd health checks and close vet contact should any problems arise.  Consignors receive individual objective and accurate reporting; and reap the benefits of comprehensive deep-rooted marketing and promotion.

Midland Bull Test has consistently topped the sales across the United States and is proud of its elite list of MBT graduates.  We boast a large number of repeat sale buyers who assert their loyalty to proven results year after year.  We are a family operation dedicated to the improvement of the beef cattle industry as we identify superior performing individuals and bloodlines within breeds.

We give Midland customers the benefit of a “total performance” bull development center.  Each bull is set up on a level playing field and measured for performance based on individual data collection and detailed reports.  Midland is the only major performance program feeding a realistic low energy ration.  The greatest opportunity ranchers have is in the ability to maximize profits found in incremental efficiency gains as cattle convert roughage to pounds on the scale.  That’ s where the vast majority of our customers make their living, and where efficiency puts more on your table.

Our facilities and programs were designed and built to emphasize the development of calves into sound, functional bulls. Yet, even with our moderate gain program, Midland has provided numerous trait leaders in the major breed sire summaries.  We offer breeders the opportunity to performance test herd sire prospects and progeny groups in an optimal bull test environment.
